    Been away from the forum for a while, glad to be back. Spent 4 days in Pilansberg SA, and had a great time. Saw some things I've never seen before, did not manage to snap everything, but got a few shots regardless.

    Will update this thread as I get through all my photos. Thanks for looking, as always, C&C, more than welcome.

    Was this luck? I saw a rhino when I was in Etosha National Park in Namibia a couple of years ago but it was in the bush a couple of hundred yards from the track and you could only tell it was a rhino and not a rock because it moved. ;)

    Was amazed at how many rhinos we saw, and how close we got. Saw 6 to 7 rhinos per drive. Even saw the highly endangered black rhino on our last drive. Seeing as 3 of these magnificent beasts are slaughtered every day, for their horns, we were very privileged.

    Thank you.

    All nice pics. Awesome shots on the rhinos (my favorite large, land animal) and that pic of the the Lilac breasted roller is one cool looking bird with that amazing plumage!

    Thank you.

    Thank you. Yes, one of my favourite African birds.
    Thank you, was a great few days in the bush.

    Thank you. The Rhino did not take much notice of them, but they calmed down when he moved past. I think their nest was in the shrubs just behind him.
